Big raised bed planters, made from old tires!
And he did a straight edge on the one below.
I chose the farm-green color, but when that can of spray paint ran out, he bought some yellow and red.
These are open on the bottom, which is what we want -- not an enclosed planter, but a small raised bed. The impetus for this project was the death of our rosemary bush. (boohoo!!!) The herb garden is a damp area, and the rosemary had inadequate drainage. These small raised beds will allow us to lift a drainage-sensitive plant up, It also provides a good barrier to prevent a plant from spreading. We'll transplant our mint into one of these as well, as it's inclined to take over.
The green plain one will have the new rosemary bush. The floral-edged green one will have a new lemongrass plant by the driveway. The small spotted one will have mint. I think Adam should get used tires from a local repair place and make these to sell at the market, don't you?
